The lower spring bearings on my front struts are shot. I see that Rockauto has some monroe struts but they indicate that there for European models.Will they work on my 164 base.

They should work but they won't come with strut bearings. None do so you have to buy lower strut bearings, bump stops and boots seperately.

If you do buy them use discount code 48E6AFF51BOE BEFORE 9/13/11 IN WHERE DID YOUR HEAR ABOUT US BLOCK.

I would buy those two remaining Boge 32475B fronts they have as they are only $9 more than their Monroes.

Thanks Steve. They sell a kit with the top bearing assy and the bottom bearing.
Yes Monroe MK041 shows both upper and lower bearings but you don't need uppers I have never needed them and kit is over $50 you will still need bump stops and boots. Maybe not a bad price for both though and they will fit Boge, too.

I get mine from Di Fatta Brothers - Alfa Romeo and Fiat Parts Sales and Service regular UPS is one day to VA maybe 3 to AL.

Yellow lower bearing less costly than black ones.

My last bump and boot buy from them was 60544493 frt boots $18 each
frt bump 82423607 $8 each in June. Didn't buy 60501446 lower bearings that time so don't have a current price from them.

IAP 30795 lower brg $25 upper $69.50 boot 18.25 and bump 12.75

Alfa 164 suspension listing works for me pick any year you want they are all the same parts. If one year doesn't come up use a different one. I thought I used 91 and just 164 to get monroe, boge listings.
